Remember Senator Palpatine, the Evil Senator From Star Wars?

Senator Palpatine was the pale-faced senator of the Galactic Empire that rose to become the Emperor through treachery and falshood? Well fiction seems to have become reality thanks to senator Joe Lieberman.

Here is what Wikipedia says about the senator.
"Although Palpatine is a well-respected statesman, underneath his affable public persona lurks his true identity: Darth Sidious, a Dark Lord of the Sith. As the Dark Lord, he initiates and manipulates the Clone Wars to destroy the Jedi and usher in the oppressive Galactic Empire.”

The Palpatine character has according to Wikipedia “become a symbol of evil and sinister deception in popular culture. Palpatine was ranked #3 greatest villain by Wizard magazine on its ‘100 Greatest Villains of All Time’ list.”

I wonder where senator Joe Lieberman will end up on the list of the "100 Greatest Traitors of All Time?"
